Burning Platforms

Burning Platforms is a fortnightly virtual forum covering the latest in technology news, events and policy.

This fortnight we ask 'What's the Go with DuckDuckGo?'

The dominance of Google’s data-hungry search engine is under the spotlight in Australia, with live inquiries on its role in the Ad-tech industry and anti-competitive deals which embed the search engine in smart devices. But DuckDuckGo has proven that you can build a search engine that's not based on user surveillance. In this week's Burning Platforms we’ll chat with DuckDuckGo’s Senior Public Policy Manager to get an idea of what competition in search could actually look like.

This and more in the always busy world of tech!

Join our regular panellists:

  • Peter Lewis, Director of The Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology
  • Lizzie O' Shea, Chair of Digital Rights Watch
  • Dan Stinton, Managing Director of Guardian Australia

And special guest:

  • Katie McInnis, Senior Public Policy Manager, DuckDuckGo
